form massachusetts governor mitt romney, the republican nominee. this debate as the next three, two presidential one vice presidential are sponsored by the commission on presidential debates. tonight's 90 minutes will be about domestic issues and will follow a format designed by the commission. there will be six roughly 15 minute segments. thousands of people offered suggestions on segment subjects but i made the final selections and for the record they were not submitted for approval to the commission or the candidates. the segments will be three on the economy and one each on health care the role of government, and governing. with an emphasis throughout on differences, specifics, and choices. both candidates will also have two-minute closing statements. the audience here in the hall has promised to remain silent. no cheers applause boos hiss among other noisy distracting things, so we may all concentrate on what the candidates have to say. there is a noise exception right now, though as we welcome president obama and governor romney. [ cheers and applause ] >> jim. >> gentlemen, w

next debate that if -- i mean certainly governor romney does not intend to bring this up. i thought what was lacking last night is a discussion about women's health care. >> stephanie: exactly. you talked about the women's vote in colorado. colorado in againal important for the election how are things looking right now? >> colorado is a swing state. for about six months it has been a one to two point advantage for the president. couple of weeks ago the president went up to three points ahead, and then just yesterday i heard there was a five-point poll, the president ahead of the governor. so i think -- like every place, the president is making steady progress here. he is here again this morning with another rally, and i expect we're going to be seeing a lot more of this. it really is kind of ground zero here. >> stephanie: absolutely. representative diana degette, good to talk to you. thank you so much. >> thank you. take care. >> stephanie: i love her. [ applause ] >> stephanie: i'm just saying this is going to get a few of the women's votes. >> i just want to wish sweety, you happ

is all from last night's debate. watch. >> obama: governor romney and i both agree corporate tax rates are too high. i suspect on social security we have similar position. and governor romney and i agree we got to boost american energy production. we've made enormous process on drawing on ideas on republicans and democrats. >> cenk: it's a debate! this is not when you agree. this is when you disagree! it's a debate! so unfortunately, i had given mitt romney some advice on how he can possibly win this thing and i said, look, come at it from the left. watch what i said before the debate. >> i would attack from the left. you say wait a minute, mitt romney is not a progressive you're right. who cares. you think the media is going to call that out? they're not going to call that out. if mitt romney did a full attack on president obama during the debates from a progressive perspective, that would actually work. and he'd get to say what? i care about the middle class. think guy obviously doesn't. >> cenk: and i talked about the middle class. i talked about poverty banks etc. and then ge
